Poetry // My Sleeping Beauty

MY SLEEPING BEAUTY. 
Who has kissed my sleeping beauty? 
Who had slept for me alone? 
Who has woken her from her sleep? 
To wander away from me? 

Has my spell so long expired? 
That she know not me again 
I better cast another spell 
Least she forever forgets me 

Where shall I find my sleeping beauty? 
Where has she sleepwalked? 
My loving spell upon her fell 
What shall be the cause? 
Have I fallen in my secrets? 
Is there a hole in me? 
That I cannot hold my beauty 
To my shoulders anymore.
